Fresh start in the new year!

Hello Everyone!

It has been a week since my last post, this year is not starting very well, but hopefully it will all get better soon and life gets back to normal. I still feel the end of the year tiredness, and I am in a big re-arrangement (it looks like we are the most messy family ever),which takes my energy totally. So not much left for crafting. I hope the order around me will help my creativity and in handling every day life too.

I wanna share one last card which I made for celebrating the new year. I wish with this one a real, good new year will start 🙂


I started my card with stamping the cute images from a Neat and Tangled set, coloured them with Shinhan markers.I die cut them with the coordinating dies along with some numbers (Lawn Fawn) from silver glitter paper. I also used a lovely stacked stars die from SSS, cut the glitter purple hearts apart and glued them separately on a scalloped stitched rectangle piece (wplus9). The card base is white, but I adhered a blue textured cardstock as a background for my scalloped piece. I also stamped the sentiment (Lawn Fawn) in black on the bottom of the card and as a finishing touch I used a black glaze pen on the eyes of the kids and glossy accents on the ribbon of the girl.


This card I gave to my mum in the end, with some nice wishes for 2017 inside. I felt that the images represent me and my kiddos in a funny, whimsical way.


I hope you like my card and will keep checking on my creations this year too. Thanks so much for spending a bit of your free time with me and all the sweet comments I got throughout the year.

I will play along with the SSS Monday Challenge Start afresh and Wednesday Challenge  Something new with this card.

All the best for 2017,
